More about this marker. A large tree has partially grown around the bottom left side of the marker, obscuring some of the inscription. The parts of the inscription within brackets in the 'Text on Marker' section above are my best guess based on the inscriptions of two similar markers, Garrisons No. 5 and No. 6.
